It's almost summer!
In honor of the season of sunshine and growth, I invite you to embark on a journey of self-care, healing and rejuvenation.
It is easy to put these things on the back-burner when you are focusing on the people that you love. You want to bring our A game -- to be alive and engaged with them, which means it's easy to put yourself last.
But here's the thing...
You can't bring your A game when you’re depleted, exhausted, overworked, over committed, and consistently putting your needs last. You cannot pour from an empty pitcher.
When you do, you AND your loved ones end up cheated. They don’t get the best version of you, they get a worn down, depleted, cranky, walking dead version of you. You think you're bringing your A game, but instead are bringing your B, or C or D game.
You DESERVE to feel nourished, to have confidence, to have energy and a spring in your step! For you AND the people that you love.

Still on the fence?
I get it. It has to just be "another program." Trust me, I've tried them all.
Until a few years ago, I would let one “bad” choice lead to another...and the another. It was like the never ending cycle of judgement, kind of like this:
Eats a donut at work 👉🏼 says, well eff it, I just screwed up today 👉🏼 eats candy off friends desk 👉🏼 leaves packed lunch in fridge and grabs take out 👉🏼 eats cookie in the afternoon 👉🏼 gahhhhh I feel like 💩 👉🏼 goes home 👉🏼skips workout 👉🏼 has wine and an entire bag of skinny pop instead of dinner.
This cycle would continue sometimes for days, other times for weeks. It was the “being good or being bad” syndrome. It sucked 🤣
So now if I choose to have the donut I realize this a CHOICE, in which I am in control over..just like every other decision I make throughout my day. I approach it without judgement, but instead with curiosity:
1. So, I ate a donut. It was delicious. Moving forward!
2. So, I ate a donut. And now I feel _______. What was I going for (or trying to cope with/cover up/avoid) by eating this donut?
This is what I help my clients to do, and I want to help you, too!!
What I've learned through through this time, and in my own personal health journey, is that there are as many “diets” as there are people on the planet. Do I have it all figured out? Nope. I am still learning, still listening to my body every day. And, compelled & driven to help others learn how to listen to theirs. What you learn about YOUR body and YOUR habits during this program will change your life!
What clients are saying...
"I had been realizing that I needed and wanted to make some changes in my lifestyle. I had fallen into habits of self-neglect, especially in terms of thoughtful and nutritious meal planning. I know that, to make a significant change of any type, it's hard to go it alone.
It felt like perfect timing when I received an email invitation from Sarah to join her 6-week group coaching program. .In this first meeting, I was quickly drawn to Sarah's contagious enthusiasm in sharing her areas of expertise and passion.
I am filled with appreciation for Sarah and for her consistent and loving guidance. It was also of great value to have this experience in a communal forum. The group's camaraderie greatly enhanced the experience, allowing us to share our challenges, learnings, inspirations and celebrations with one another.
I have re-discovered the good feeling that comes from truly caring about my well-being, by making self-care a consistent and joyful priority. I am well on my way.
If you are ready to welcome some topnotch and fun coaching, on your way to optimal health.........treat yourself to a collaboration with Sarah."
"There are so many accomplishments I'm proud of that started during this jump start. In addition to weight loss, I'm most proud of the "non scale victories." In just six weeks, my blood pressure dropped from being in the "high" category to just being slightly elevated. It was so amazing to celebrate this victory with my doctor at my last check up and our hope is that the changes I've made will eventually mean I can go off high blood pressure medication!The biggest change for me is that I finally feel in control. I am acutely aware of the decisions that I make with regard to my nutrition and my body -- no longer do my choices send me into the cycle of guilt that eventually results in giving up on myself. Let it go. Move forward.A new habit Sarah instilled in us is to "re frame" self-limiting beliefs that naturally creep up. I catch myself thinking "I don't have time" and hear Sarah's voice saying "wait, let's re frame that" and I land on something like "there's always enough time for what is most important."In this program, you are not alone. The level of knowledge and trust that Sarah brings is, without a doubt, the most important part of this journey. Not only is she knowledgeable and authentic, she is also funny, honest, real, and trustworthy. As a result, she brought out those characteristics in all of us in the group. The group that started together in January became very close, and we continue to rely on each other to celebrate victories (however small), re frame all the negative crap, share recipes, and to move forward!This is not for someone who wants "microwave results." This is a "slow cooker" program that's more about the sum of a lot of small changes then a quick fix that can't be sustained!"
"This program allowed me to refocus my thoughts about food and how to best fuel my body. I've never considered myself an un-healthy eater, but I think we all have patterns that revolve around food, some of them healthy and some of them definitely not. I also just feel so in-tune with my body. I have learned that my body will tell me when I am doing something that serves it and when I am not. I am now much more capable and wanting to react to those messages now after this program.I no longer depend on coffee in the morning for my energy, but rather my food choices that compound over the days. I am doing less stress/boredom eating, and if I do, I am able to choose more nutritious, high-energy foods that make me feel better afterwards instead of worse. I stopped using my hectic work schedule and social life as an excuse to put my health on the backburner. These habits I've started make my body feel amazing and they make me feel good about my body. This outlook gives me the ability to live my best life with confidence and vibrancy.Overall, I feel happier at work and am in a much better mood. I am sleeping much better, and feeding myself properly has flowed over into me taking care of myself more holistically- body, mind, and spirit. The support and accountability that this group of women offered was really special. And of course, Sarah is always there to answer any questions and provide support! She is in it for the long haul --no quick fixes here!"
